W. 1st Street Map

Beginning Monday, July 8, 2019, the contractor will begin Stage 1 reconstruction of 1st Street.  A full road closure will occur from Walnut Street to Franklin Street. This will be in effect for approximately 2 months, but this is weather dependent.

A detour route is marked, traveling on West 2nd Street from Franklin Street to Walnut Street. However, the community is encouraged to use alternate routes, to reduce area congestion and traffic on neighborhood roads. For safety's sake, the public is asked to please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It is advised that the public stay behind the sidewalk, on the private property side, during the reconstruction work.

 Construction is being led by the Iowa DOT. Information is posted on their Facebook page:!BlackHawkBremerCo. For additional information or questions during the course of construction, please contact or at the Iowa DOT. City contacts are or
